saltmarshDANCE and Suzanne Saltmarsh, created and memorialized a Dance Tribute to September 11, 2001.  CAUTION would blend "en pointe" and the naked foot for the first time and explore the relationship to pain, grievance and loss.

As if it were yesterday
Time stood still
We held breathe our nation stood frozen
In disbelief we watched
Unable to move
When we caught our breathe
We were irrevocably changed
Now we stand today
In the crossroads
On the track
Of life
That does not cease
We must leap across
The aftermath
The ashes and fears
And bravely go where we must
To a world of Equality and Justice
There is no turning back
Forward into the unknown
We Must March together
To fight for freedom for All
To lift up those in despair and find the commonality
Of our hearts beating together
